Pierre Grimes and the Noetic Society

Overview

The Noetic Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit group with members in Southern California and around the world, who have been inspired to study Homer, Parmenides, the pre-Socratics, Plato, the neo-Platonists, and other perennial philosophers and mystics, not for academic reasons, but for personal spiritual growth. The society was founded by Pierre Grimes, PhD in 1967, and was incorporated in 1978.

Pierre and Eldar discuss greater and greater wholes, until the dialogue itself causes Eldar to enter into an experience of Mind (around 0:47:00 or so) so intense that he passes out (or IN!) and can no longer participate. (A discussion of his state is taken up two days later at our Saturday gathering .). Later, Bradley, Regina, JeffL, Barbara, and Jed participate. Highlights...

Synopsis Nice review and continuation of yesterday evening's (un-recorded) chat with Pierre at the Women's Club about the necessity for the philosophy of the Self. Much of the discussion focuses on the place for "Logos", and the special Platonic meaning of the terms, "Justice", and the post-midwife-talk experience (after one sees how a pathologos plays out in their family in a past scene, etc.). Relating Justice to Joriki (in Zen Buddhism) and other near-Eastern philosophy...

Finally, we get into Homer's Iliad again (Book 23), with the Fitzgerald version, and Barbara's notes on the autos.

Synopsis Pierre leads us through this one-day, 3-session seminar exploring the dimension of the Self and the Logos in Plato's thought. The Self is both profoundly personal and transcendent since it is both the experiencer and the experienced. To realize this, Pierre leads us into the thought of Plato's Phaedrus for the union of the theme of love and the Logos. The path to its realization is seen to be joined with its source within the Self because it is through the inspired role of reflection...

Synopsis Pierre leads the Noetic Society Parmenides study group through another session of study. Lately we've been taking a break from the Parmenides, going through Proclus' Theology of Plato (*) instead, in order to see how Proclus lays out the 14 orders of gods implied in the Parmenides. Today we read Book 6, Chapter 22. From Barbara: I was in a very low state and didn't even realize I wasn't notating what Pierre was putting on the board until the middle of chart 2 and then I kept falling...

Synopsis Pierre opens up the question of what is a daemon in the Platonic world. Since Plato has emphasized rational daemons (such as the daemon, Love , in his Symposium , we have studied these before. Tonight Pierre reviews these, but also asks, what, then, is an irrational daemon? Note: Pierre later shared with me that he was not satisfied with tonight's talk, and that the talk he prepared and gave two weeks later on February 7th was much better organized and thought out.
